DUNROBIN – What can only be described as the hottest golf of their lives, Brenda Fawcett and Eric Cormier won the women and men’s Eagle Creek Golf Club Senior Club Championships over the weekend.
Last weekend, West Carleton faced record-breaking heat with temperatures that felt hotter than 40 degrees Celsius at times. At the same time, Eagle Creek’s senior golfers were battling to be named 2020 club champion.
Fawcett took home the senior women’s championship with a gross two-round score, played Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26, of 176. Fawcett opened the tournament with an 86 on the Par 72 Eagle Creek course, the lowest of the first day rounds.
Fawcett was able to hold on to first place with a 90 on day two to claim the trophy. Second place finisher Allyson Downs fell just shy of a huge comeback almost erasing a five-stroke deficit on day two shooting 86 for a two-day total of 177.
The low round of the tournament went to Susan Goheen who shot an 84 on day two. She finished in fourth spot with a 181 total.
Cormier enjoyed a seven-stroke victory shooting 71-74 for a 145 two-day score. His 71 was the lowest single round score among the competitors and his 74 tied for the second lowest round of the tournament. John Ackehurst came second with a 78-74-152.
“Our Eagle Creek members battled through the heat today for the 2020 senior club championships,” Eagle Creek club staff released in a statement yesterday (July 276). “Congratulations to Brenda Fawcett and Eric Cormier our champions with Helen Dicks and Marc Bedard taking the net titles.”
